Carlisle, PA (PRWEB) October 25, 2016
Carlisle SynTec Systems recently issued Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for their EPDM, TPO, PVC, and KEE HP single-ply roofing membranes. Created and verified in accordance with International Standard ISO 14025, EPDs summarize the ways in which a product affects the environment throughout its lifecycle.
Issuing these EPDs provides design and construction professionals with detailed, comparable information about the environmental performance of Carlisle’s single-ply membranes. Carlisle’s product-specific EPDs can contribute toward LEED® credits and have been verified by third parties (UL for TPO and EPDM, and NSF for PVC and KEE HP). This transparency and independent verification allows specifiers and purchasers to make more informed product selections when seeking to enhance a building’s overall sustainability.
“Carlisle is committed to working with architects, contractors, and building owners to build a sustainable future. Issuing EPDs provides construction professionals with a high level of transparency regarding the environmental impacts of Carlisle’s products,” stated Mike DuCharme, Carlisle’s director of product marketing.
EPDs are quickly becoming a key component of the material selection process, particularly in the sustainable construction sector. Visit http://www.carlislesyntec.com and click on the “Building Green” tab to view and download Carlisle’s EPDs.
